Have to agree with Verno; current gen consoles XBOX360 have already become glossy advertisement-machines with kludgy interfaces. I really dont want another console at this point.

There fixed that for ya... never did understand the fanboism from the 360 crowd. The 360 was a cheap poorly made POS, you had to PAY to play and they apparently also shove ads down your throat. I'm using my original fatPS3, upgraded my HD with a standered laptop drive, havent paid a dime to play online and get no ads whatsoever... As for the next gen, meh I'll happily enjoy my PS3 for quite a few more years and look into the next gen consoles a few years after release and make an informed decision based on the product and services offered.

And the PS3 is any better? Granted the 'improved' the online store, it's still a mess to find things. And what about Home? It's a virtual environment/store for items as well. And lets talk about online, rampant cheating and hacking of games, voice chat is a mess, downloading anything from Sony takes TEN times longer then Xbox Live. Not to mention the whole system being taken offline due to data theft.

But I will give Sony 1 thing, the free games if your a PLUS member.

But PLEASE do not post all this hate towards the 360 when the PS3 has had it's fair share of issues and Microsoft has never had to send out 70 MILLION emails informing it's customers of data theft.

Seriously? you specifically said "glossy advertisement-machines" The PS3 simply does not do this. I see no ads whatsoever, all I have is my nice fish tank with little fishies swimming around, so yes the PS3 in the context of your rant is better. kludgy interfaces... ya I'll give you that, though I personally have no issues with it, course I have the little mini keyboard the clips right onto my controller which makes typing soooo much easier.

Personally I have zero problems finding stuff, infact with the new interface its even easier, just find the game you want and it lists all the DLC for said game right there nice and easy.

What about Home? never installed it myself, isnt needed to play games which is what I do, so why even bring it up it has nothing to do with the subject matter.

Cheating? seriously? your going to bash consoles for cheating when the PC is the king?... and the PS3 is the most secure system on the market, there is NO cheating beyond stupid shit like unpluging your cable. I've never had issues playing online (ok had one, but it was related to the shit modem\router my ISP used) never had issues with voice chat.

Ya sure, Sony got hacked, Microsoft only built a low cost POS that had an unbelievable failure rate and then tried to bury the fact until they were forced fix or replace the junk consoles. At least Sonys only problem was being targeted by a hacker group out to get them, totally out of thier control, and frankly if the tables had been turned and they went after Microsoft instead I'm sure the results would have been exactly the same. BTW how much free stuff did Microsoft give away because of thier poorly designed console? Sony gave us a ton of free shit and it wasnt even thier doing.
